Icelandic born Björnsson, 26, challenged world champion armwrestler Devon Larratt to a battle of the biceps, assuredly mistaking Larratt for a small child. With Björnsson weighing in at 412lbs (29 stone) and 6’9″ to Larratt’s 225lbs (16 stone) and 6’5″, you’d expect The Mountain to romp home with a victory any day of the week.
Larratt, who has won the accolade of World Armwrestling League Heavyweight Champion twice, made short work of the tall man while hardly breaking a sweat, and beat Björnsson three times in a row. Despite the loss, Björnsson took the defeat in his massive stride and graciously congratulated Larratt.
Next time Hafthor should use his bodyweight like Larrat did. Perhaps the results will be different, who knows?
